EDINA, Minn. (WCCO) – Police in Edina are offering a $5,000 reward after a break-in Thursday night at a Lunds and Byerlys parking lot left three people injured.
Edina Police say officers were dispatched to Lunds and Byerlys on West 50th Street shortly after 5 p.m., following reports of an ongoing carjacking.
Four teenage boys are trying to remove an occupied car from the lot, and two are trying to help the owner. Police said no weapons are believed to be involved in the incident. However, one person was seriously injured and taken to North Memorial Hospital. They were released later in the evening. Two other injured people were treated at the scene.
